Please be aware due to the current circumstances we are not taking on volunteers, please check back in the future!!


How do I volunteer?

There are a few steps to take before you can volunteer with us. Firstly you need to fill out and send volunteer application and monitoring forms. Once these have been received you will be invited into the office for a chat about volunteering, this will also give you a chance to ask any questions you might have. Finally all volunteers must complete a foundation course to equip you with the knowledge you will need to work with us.

How much time will I be expected to give?

Volunteers are expected to complete 1 shift (or 3 hours) a month for each project you volunteer with. You can do more than that if the opportunity arises.

What will I be doing?

That will depend on which team(s) you decide to join. We have opportunities for volunteers in the following projects: Outreach, Training, Publicity, Peer Education, Boys & Young Men, Head Start Peer Mentoring, and Children At Risk of Exploitation (CARE).

Will I be working on my own?

No! You will always be with an experienced worker(staff or volunteer). At first you will be shadowing, which means watching how a more experienced worker does the role. Once you are more familiar with the role you can begin to take on work. You will go at your own pace. You don’t have to do everything that your chosen project does, for example if you volunteer at the drop in and don’t want to do pregnancy tests you won’t have to.

How do I get to where I will be working?

Volunteers will either come to the Cornerhouse office first or be picked up from home.

Do I get expenses?

Cornerhouse will pay all reasonable travel expenses. If you are working over a lunch time we also have a lunch allowance. All expenses are paid back, so you will have to lay out in advance.

Do I need a DBS?

Yes if you are going to be working alone with young people. We will go through the DBS form with you once you have successfully completed your Foundation Course.
